The Forest Can’t Save Multiplayer Progress Fix

In my experience with multiplayer games, the lack of a forest save feature has been frustrating.

Running the Game with Administrative Privileges

To fix the issue of not being able to save multiplayer progress in The Forest, one potential solution is to run the game with administrative privileges. This can help ensure that the game has the necessary permissions to save progress properly.

To run the game with administrative privileges, follow these steps:

1. Right-click on the game’s executable file or shortcut.
2. Select “Run as administrator” from the context menu.
3. Confirm any prompts that appear to grant administrative privileges to the game.

By running the game with administrative privileges, you may be able to circumvent any issues related to saving progress in multiplayer mode. This can help ensure that your progress is saved correctly and that you can continue playing without any interruptions.

In addition to running the game with administrative privileges, you may also want to consider checking for any updates or patches that may have been released to address this issue. Keeping your game up to date can help prevent future problems with saving progress in multiplayer mode.

Configuring Windows Firewall and Antivirus Settings

Step Action
1 Open Windows Firewall settings
2 Click on “Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall”
3 Locate The Forest in the list of programs and make sure both Public and Private checkboxes are checked
4 Save the changes and close the Windows Firewall settings
5 Open your antivirus software settings
6 Add The Forest to the list of exclusions or trusted applications
7 Save the changes and close the antivirus software settings

Verifying and Managing Game File Integrity

Step 1: Open Steam and navigate to your game library. Right-click on The Forest and select Properties. Go to the Local Files tab and click on Verify Integrity of Game Files. This will scan the game files and download any missing or corrupted ones.

Step 2: Once the verification process is complete, launch the game and see if the issue has been resolved. If not, you can try managing the game files manually.

Step 3: Navigate to the game’s installation folder on your computer. Look for any files that seem out of place or corrupted. You can try deleting these files and then verifying the game files through Steam again.

Step 4: If the issue persists, you may want to consider reinstalling the game. Before doing so, make sure to back up any important save files or game data to prevent loss.

By verifying and managing the game file integrity, you can potentially fix the problem of multiplayer progress not saving in The Forest.

Creating and Managing Save Points

  • Check for automatic save feature:
    • Ensure that the game has an automatic save feature that is functioning properly.
    • If the automatic save feature is not working, try troubleshooting the issue by checking for updates or reinstalling the game.
  • Manually create save points:
    • Look for an option in the game menu to manually create save points.
    • If this option is not available, try using the in-game console command or mod to create save points.
  • Manage save points:
    • Keep track of your save points and ensure that you are saving your progress regularly.
    • Delete old save points that are no longer needed to free up space and avoid confusion.
